    ok so i used to have a wii version 4.1u
    i wanted to install the internet channel because my friend had it on his wii
    so i went to the shop channel and i saw that it needed to be updated
    then a message popped up about this update would remove illegal stuff (Homebrew Channel, which i had)
    so i panicked and stopped
    but i found a way to safely upgrade to 4.2u
    after i did that, i found out the internet channel was for free [yay!]
    so i installed it & got to check it out
    on youtube i saw a tutorial of how to install themes on wii 4.2u but it didnt for me (probably because i didnt install a preloader?)
    what should i do/download/whatever? [im a n00b btw...]

    do a search for darkwii on the board.. you MUST have bootmi & preloader with NAND backup before even attempting to theme your WII.

    bootmii is not a must but preloader or priiloader is a must if you want to mess with themes had a few bad themes and preloader or priiloader has saved my Wii's ass from a Bricking
